Title: Affirmations of the Depressed
A few years ago, I wrote my own 10 Commandments for bipolar disorder. I did this after reading someone else’s negative and distorted stigmatic list of commandments that degraded people living with bipolar disorder!
It wasn’t funny, so I figured I would add a little reality and balance to that list and wrote my own, posting it on one of my blogs back in 2007. I thought it was funny and a little educational. There have been many types of 10 Commandments lists for all sorts of things besides bipolar disorder. Since then, I’ve seen that list show up on a dozen or more websites and blogs.
